Description

This is like a meaner brother of Mexican crack. The climbs are similar as they offer traversing cracks. Gran Hermano, however is thinner, steeper, and more strenuous...excellent climbing.

Location

Start at the 2nd pitch (main one) of the Flakes. Follow the first pitch for 25'. Take the right branching diagonal finger crack to a wide vertical crack. Follow this to the top

Protection

Standard rack of cams from a #0 TCU up to 4" cam
